There really wasn't much difference, in that Bob Greenberger pretty much let me
do what I wanted, as long as I didn't change anything canonical. It was also
just a one-shot, so there was only so much damage I could really do. What the
"name recognition" factor has done, really, is to just get me access to more
cool stuff.

In order of inquiries: yes, and no.

Me too. I was surprised nobody had ever thought to put them together before,
since there's a lot visually and thematically to play with.
